Do you remember when I made my daughter this pencil case?
I really liked its shape and decided to make myself one too.
as I was looking at it again I had the thought that it looked a bit like a caravan and wouldn’t it be fun to make a caravan pencil case to remind me of my lovely caravan holiday in France this summer.
And so started a fun few hours cutting and stitching and creating to come up with this…
What do you think?
I used my linen (still in love with the stuff 🙂 ) and some gorgeous flowery fabric from my abandoned Lucy Boston wall hanging.
Then embroidered a window, door and bunting onto it
decorated the back a bit…
added a bit of ribbon to the zip
neatened up the seams inside
Until next time,
This caravan case has been a bit of a hit on Pinterest 🙂 If you’re visiting from there welcome. I am intending to write a pattern for this so keep checking back and if I leave it too long feel free to give me a gentle reminder!
November 2014 update: The promised pattern has now been written and can be found on my Tutorials page, please enjoy it and send me a photo of your creations 🙂
